The police has arrested two students of Muzaffarnagar Medical College for paying Rs.1 lakh each to a gang that submits answers written by experts instead of the students themselves. One of the students is Ayush Kumar, 21, son of a doctor and the other is Swarnjeet Singh, 22, hailing from Punjab. The investigation is ongoing to find out more such students involved in this racket.

The Special Task Force (STF) in-charge, Brijest Singh said,

“Both the students were charged Rs 1 lakh each in the deal. The two (students) met the woman student, who is their batchmate, following a bad semester exam on March 15. She offered them the deal, as part of which freshly written copies by experts would be submitted instead of answers written by themselves. Later, the girl’s father brokered the deal with the cheating mafia. More names of students will come up once we scan the answer sheets of previous years.”

There have been nine others, including six officials of one of the top UP’s universities, Meerut’s Chaudhary Charan Singh University involved in helping students cheat their way to becoming doctors. From 2014, 600 doctors have been identified as bogus and a part of this scam. This scam is similar to the Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh where politicians, university officials, businessmen manipulated the entrance exam, seating and dummy arrangements and forged answer-sheets by bribing officials.
